Description: An extraordinary spiritual journal -- a record of the inner life of one of America's most brilliant intellectuals during a year of mourning.

When Leon Wieseltier's father died in March 1996, he began to observe the rituals of the traditional year of mourning, going three times daily to synagogue to recite the Kaddish. Between his prayers and his everyday responsibilities, he sought out ancient, medieval, and modern Jewish texts in pursuit of the Kaddish's history and meaning.

And every day he studied, translated, and wrote down his own reflections on the obscure texts he had found, punctuating his journal with stories about life in his synagogue and his family's progress through grief. In reflecting upon the fate of his father and of his people, he wrestles with problems of loss and faith, the meaning of tradition, freedom, and determinism, and the perplexity of religion.

Kaddish is a work of history, philosophy, and interior autobiography, of moral force and emotional power.
